YouTube has named ten Nigerians among content creators to receive grants for the development of their channels from its 2022 black voices fund.
According to a statement on Thursday, the list includes a total of 26 African content creators selected from Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa.
It also said the African creators would join a global cohort of 135 in its flagship #YouTubeBlack voices fund initiative.
The statement said apart from the grants to be received, those selected will also “get bespoke training, workshops and networking opportunities.”
Alex Okosi, managing director of YouTube’s emerging markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), described the selected African content creators as “outstanding”.
